I could suggest one that could be modified. It's an american Tichy concrete coaling tower. Normally filled by dumping coal hoppers into an underground bunker the coal is then carried to the 500T coal tower by bucket hoist. This could be modified to carry a four wheel wagon a nd the top of the tower modified to recieve it. Have a look at

Tichy make an excellent model of a Fairbanks Morse 500t coaling tower. It is of US origin but could be hacked up to create a more british looking model. IHC, International Hobby Corporation, make a model of the UP coaling stage at Cheyene which was of 1000t capacity. An LMS Cenotaph model was a feature in the last British Railways Modellers of Australia journal. When I get back home in a few weeks I'll see if I can scan the plans for the model.
